The Last Witch in Ireland: The Story of Bridget Cleary

InBocca Performance

Was it folklore hysteria or gender-based violence?

The Last Witch In Ireland: In 1895 Michael Cleary declared his wife had been replaced by a changeling whom he’d burned and buried as he waited for his real wife to be returned. Who was Bridget Cleary, the last witch burned in Ireland? Who are we women – the wife or the changeling?
